2 thoughts on “NHD Episode 14 – Is this podcast appropriate?”
Dear Jones and Balding,
My quality quandary is that I am required on a regular basis to provide a 15 minute presentation on clinical governance as part of a general orientation program for new staff. What should I include to ensure I capture the hearts and minds of new impressionable staff in just 15 minutes? I thought this may be something you could consider in one of your fabulous podcasts!
Hi Lindy – good to hear from you and to get your question! We will definitely attempt to answer it in Episode #16 – we’ve just recorded #15 so that will be in late May. No doubt many people are in the same boat so we will do our best to come up with something useful!
